Review: Patenting Peter [dystopian]

Patenting PeterPatenting Peter by Jason Werbeloff
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I liked it way too much for what it was. The ending was catchy enough to pull it all together in spite of numerous shortcomings. If this is a hint of "Defragmenting Daniel" I might push that up a few notches in the reading queue. Not keen on the world in this dystopia, nor the people in it, but if it all implodes into chaos and despair, all is not lost.

Sweet Infected Inspirations

My character Emma, the protagonist, started out as one person and became another. It shows in the book as she evolves and transforms in so many ways from the opening butt-kicking scene to the final fight of the book. Then we get to see even more in the teaser for book 2.

I started out writing about her without really knowing her, and little clues and hints about her personality and appearance came to me as I slowly grew to know her bit by bit. I became her in spirit, since it's a first-person narrative. Every time I sat down to write I had to get into character to be sure to have the consistency necessary for a smooth plot flow.

I've mentioned a few times now that Anime was a major influence on my characters and their relationships. Every now and then I find an image on G+ that represents some small facet of Emma's character.

My reviewers think I did an excellent job. I hope you will too.

Review: Children of Atlas [science fiction]

Children of Atlas by Dustin Porta
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

To me it seemed very convoluted and disjointed. I started skimming ahead looking for something to like. The protagonist seemed likable enough to start, but soon the empathy failed and there turned out to be multiple protagonist lines and eventually I started hoping everyone would just die. Sorry about that.

I know several people out there like this kind of story, but I'm not one of them. Written well enough, just no characters to latch onto and get the feels for [for me anyway].
